DWTS’ Maks, Erin Andrews Play Coy on Romance Rumors


Dancing with the Stars partners Maksim "Maks" Chmerkovskiy and Erin Andrews played coy when asked about rumors that they're heating up off the dance floor.

"We're married already!" Chmerkovskiy, 30, joked with UsMagazine.com after Monday's show. "We're way past the point of anything else."

Their chemistry was obvious on the dance floor as he and the ESPN correspondent, 31, earned a 23 for their fox trot.

"I think this dance really fit my personality more, and we just had a great time out there," she told Us.

Chmerkovskiy told Us he is impressed at how much his partner (a former four-year member of the University of Florida Dazzlers) has grown.

"She is a really hard worker, and although we still have a lot of work to do, I am confident she'll stay in the competition," he told Us. "She needs to show everyone the true potential of what she can do."

Ironically, Andrews' sister is a professional dancer.

"She says everything that Maks says!" Andrews told Us. "She's like his echo. I listen to anything she or Maks says!"
